John...according to that graph, optimal veiwing range for a 47" 1080p is ~7'.  Is that right or do my graph reading skills suck beyond imagination?

Optimal for 1080p is the red line, so it would be more like 6'.  But as long as you sit within 8' or so you'll be able to notice a difference between a 1080p and a 720p screen.  8.5'+ and there'd be no reason to own a 1080p set.

sweet!  I'm in process of buying a new house and "my" room is 10' X 10'.  This is where I'll have all of my toys that are in my signature line below.

for me the chart isn't "right"
i have a 61" and sit 12 ft away and you can def see the difference between 480, 720, and 1080

That's about right then.  At 12 feet you should be able to see a difference between all of them, but you wouldn't be getting the full benefit of 1080p at that distance.

I'm 9' away from a 61" screen.  I'll take it!


Because nothing says "I have lots of money and am sort of confused as to how to spend it" like Bose.

Oh and from what I understand that chart does not depend on your eyesight.  I.e. even though I have 20/10 vision the chart still applies to me, because there is a fixed "resolution" that your eyes can see at, due to the number of rods and cones and stuff like that. ;)
